Top 50 Books at OBHS in 2016

By Lynn Vare | Posted: Thursday December 29, 2016

2016 was a great year for new books in the Library, most were pleasingly full of clever story lines, great characters and relatively few vampires!

My picks of the year: Bone Gap, My Sister Rosa, The Road to Winter, Read Between the Lines, the Bone Sparrow and Anna Dressed in Blood. The OBHS Book Club also rated Bone Gap and My Sister Rosa highly, which was great given most of these students are hard out fantasy readers.

You'll see some of these titles on the following list of the most popular 50 books read by our students this year with Anna Dressed in Blood at no. 1 by one point!
